Putting the photo in a laminating pouch is a good solution for protecting your picture from dust and scratching. It also makes it water-resistant so that you can use your photo everywhere. However, is it possible to laminate photos without the particular machine?
People use a cold setting (also known as the ‘no heat’ or no-stroke setting) to keep the sheet in place while it is laminated, without using heat. It’s beneficial for items that might be sensitive to heat, such as photographs and handmade cards.
